We came out for Jurassic Park trivia night and were very impressed. While definitely a small place, all the employees were friendly and helpful, and the beer was good. Better yet, they even have their own parking! Not something most places in Downtown Durham can claim. I could see it being a really nice place to go on a pretty day since they had additional outdoor seating. Will definitely be back. :)

Good beer, especially their sours. I was expecting the place to be busier on a Saturday night! Many of the people sitting at the outdoor tables were just there for the food truck The Dankery (which was really not that good). There are better breweries in town, but this one definitely competes.

I'm not a big beer person so I played it safe and got a Sparkling Strawberry Cider. I can honestly say it was really good! Not too strong and it didn't have an after taste.

Delicious and interesting brews, reasonable prices, unique flight boards, sweet staff, an N64, tasty food trucks, all around a fantastic place to hang with friends & family. Kid and pup-friendly too! We pretty much make a new friend every time we visit. They also have great bottle releases every so often. Go here when it's too busy at Fullsteam, it's like a 5 minute walk.

Seriously, being a millennial in this place is downright delightful. Tasty beer, N64 AND Super Nintendo donkey Kong, and their food trucks are not to be scoffed at. Enjoy the dogs, kids, and fun movies.

Bartender was super laid back. Good beer. Wasn't too busy. They have a Super Nintendo and N64 hooked up for you to play (free) while you drink beers.

Fun, hole in the wall feeling place with music, good beer, games and an awesome food truck. The bar tenders were great and I loved playing Mario on their Nintendo while drinking my craft beer. The food truck while unhealthy was phenomenal. You have to cheat every once in a while and if you’re going to then check out Dank food truck. I loved their chicken tenders and chose multiple sauces which were all off the chain.

Great brew variety makes for a crowd pleaser. Plentiful outdoor seating, many board games along with a ping pong and foosball table inside.

The Durty Bull is a fantastic place that has great tasting beer, an awesome staff, and a magnificent crowd of people. Plus, it has one of the best comedy open mics in the triangle on Friday nights.

I have went here and had the beer! They have a wide selection of beer. The food truck has an excellent tasteful appetizing short order food.

This brewery is fantastic. Both the amount and quality of the choices here are outstanding. As well as being accompanied by one of if not the best locally owned food trucks in the city. I would very much recommend this place to folks who like great cold beer and great food.

Love the Durty Bull! Always have good flavors with great seasonal options. The food truck outside the Shrimp and Pasta Dankery has bomb food that goes so well w the beer. Durty bull also hosts a lot of different events which are always worthwhile attending!

I love this place! The dankery is right next door so it’s the perfect place to have a drink and get good food. They have events there sometimes which I enjoy going to.

Beers are unique and always rotating. Vibe is pretty chill during the week, and they do a ton of fun events on the weekends!

Great beers. Tents outside with mist to keep you cool. Table signs to differentiate which tables have already been disinfected and sanitized and ready for you to sit. A brewery doing it right during covid.

Quad was worth the trip, they need a few darker brews. Quality was excellent, service was excellent, tables were sanitized and separated.

Good variety of beers in a pretty chill place. They’re not afraid to try new flavors and have beers with tamarind, ginger, coconut, and peach (not extracts). Their sours are very approachable. Definitely coming back!

Stopped in for socially distanced Stand Up Comedy in the front lot/loading area on a recent Friday- stand up was fun, and the beer was great. We love the sours.

Great local brewery with many rotating taps. Staff is always friendly and willing to let you try anything. Vibe is very laid back, dog and kid friendly. When not in pandemic times they did a ton of dog adoptions, local craft markets and blood donation drives to help out the Durham community!

Long ago when I first tried Durty, I wasn't so sure. They've evolved a bit since then, and I become more of a fan all the time. As I've grown less interested in Fullsteam, Durty take more and more of my attention. Black Is Beautiful has just cemented that, and the sours are always a treat. Looking forward to seeing where they head from here.

Utterly delicious. Tasted Death to Smoothie, Lager, and the barrel-aged. Loved every one and had to take home the first 2. My friend had The Works and loved it. Looking forward to coming back for more

Always a great experience! No gluten free brews, but they have cider and wine. Love the live music, disc golf baskets, old school video games, food trucks, etc. Had a great time at trivia tonight and enjoyed a couple of ciders. Still waiting on a gluten free on deglutenized beer though.

Stopped in while visiting from Delaware. Very cool place. The beer was decent (the stouts were the best of the bunch) and there was indoor and outdoor seating available. It's a fun place to pass an afternoon/evening.

We had a bunch of the sours. They were all good. Nice alcohol content, good flavor, and good differences between them (sometimes sours all taste the same but these were all different). We also had fun using the Nintendo and the trivia games provided. We were visiting but seemed like a great place to hang out.

Small indoor space but great to sit outside with refreshing mist in the heat. The beers tasted different than in other places, we loved the King of the Beach and Sippy Cup - tasted like a cocktail. Two flights of 5 were $24. Durty Bull only had food from a food truck but we didn't try but heard it was delicious. We passed by later again and there were stand-up comedians performing. They weren't really funny but it was free.

My favorite Durham brewery! Local company with great service and always great unique beers. Went here for a beer tour a few years ago and keep coming back. They have the best sours!

Best beer, best bartenders, and the best events. Between the comedy open mic on Friday, the live music on Saturday’s, and the trivia on Sunday... Durty Bull has the best food trucks and the ultimate atmosphere. A wide open parking lot patio, with plenty of space and lots of tables, is the perfect place to spend the weekend with your friends. Never mind the amazing staff which is always friendly and attentive, the custom made beer slushees on the weekends makes this my favorite place to vibe.

Amazing beer selection, friendly staff and super clean. Well setup and allows dogs into inside area for colder nights. Warm tent outside for shelter from winds and 16 beers on draft. Soon to offer dog beers from a local company. Amazing seltzer, ipa, sours, and lighter beers.

Always been a favorite of mine when visiting Durham. The beer is top-notch! The service is always great! I walk in, say hello, ask a simple question about a new beer, order my beer, and that’s it. No need for the welcoming fanfare and over-the-top service to make me feel that I’m the most important person in the taproom or else I'm writing a one-star review. Complying with Covid safety measures is top-notch.

If you need a private party space rental, RUN, don’t walk, to Durty Bull! Their heated outdoor tent was the perfect size for my party of 20 people, and would easily fit more than that. The heating was sufficient to keep us comfortable on a below-freezing night! I looked at all the private event spaces around Durham and Durty Bull was the best price BY FAR, and more private than most other options. The bartenders were awesome and the beer was great too, as usual!

We LOVE this brewery. I can’t say enough about their brews (especially if you are an ipa lover or like hard seltzer). Beyond that the staff is always kind and considerate. On one chilly night, our family was sitting outside and one of the employees brought an outdoor space heater right next to us to keep us cozy. It’s very dog and kid friendly. One of our favorite Durham spots!

Cool dog-friendly bar and brewery. The staff is friendly and the beer is great! They often hold events on Saturdays with local vendors. They've also done fundraisers with the Animal Protection Society of Durham, which is the biggest reason why I happily support their business!
